    It is boring. But it looks stunning. Beats some of the stuff ive seen on a DS or PSP.

    Its got good potential.

    It’s only a tech demo, but a very impressive one at that.

    Regarding the DS, this is hardly a difficult thing to achieve :p

    Tap Tap Revolution looks better than some DS games :p

    It is incredibly restricted in terms of interaction etc, but it’s very impressive as a tech demo. It’s significantly more impressive than any other handheld device and actually closer to what you see on the PS3/360. Well in excess of the PSP and DS.

    Wow, that’s gorgeous for a handheld. Kicks the shit out of the DS and the PSP, that’s for sure.

    if the ipad/phone/pad has more power than the psp, then why does each remake feature the DS version with some touch ups? (GTA China Town Wars for example).
    I’d like a tablet fully capable of running proper linux & some decent/modern games, idk why Linux gets no support, it’s the best OS, expecially for it’s price, FREE!

    I was skeptical on iOS gaming till this…. WOW!!! Epic could easily have Elder Scrolls Oblivion in your pocket with much better graphics! I am impressed beyond words!

    I know I am probably doing something wrong as I am pretty basic when it comes to computers.
